Ryk Uten Ild (Smoke Without Fire) is our smoky beer, here we have tried to make a beer as smoky as we can using our smoked malt from Weiermann. We have made a fairly dark and flavourful beer. Apart from the special malt the rest of the malt bill (86%) is smoked malt. You could also say that this is a smoked wheat beer, because we have used our wheat beer yeast here. The beer is not scary but actually very nice even for those that arent smoke beer fanatics....try it and you will see. Contains malted barley, Amarillo hops, wheat beer yeast, and lots of smoked malt from Bamberg, Germany. 8% alc, 33 ibu, 48 ebc. Serving temp 8 - 12C or 46 - 53F.

Quick-review; Dark, almost pitch black colour. Big on the peat, good mouthfeel, rich, sweet aftertaste with hints of dried fruit. Good, alittle over the top, needs storeage?

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - JAN 15, 2011
500ml bottle served in a Tank 7 tulip. Poured a deep brown with two fingers of tan head. Smokey aroma with a little sausage, dark malt, also a fair amount of citrus hops. Medium bodied. Plenty of smoke in the flavor along with hop bitterness. Smoke lingers in the finish. The smoke flavor became a little like liquid smoke as it warmed, which distracted. One of these is plenty.

Richmond 13th. Brownish black, slight head. Aroma is pumpernickel and coffee. Flavor is a match. A bit towards sausage, but not bad. Well done, the smoke freaks should go nuts over this.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2011
(Sample Date: 1/19/2011 Source:BrewEngineer) Apple like smoke over creosote and dark fruit notes with a faint sourness. Slightly cloudy dark amber brown with small fluffy tan head. Smoky flavor with lots of roasty character. Light bitter stringency. Light to medium body and mouth feel. Finish is dry with some nice warming. Tasty.

Sampled at the Richmond Gather XIII. Clear very deep mahogany pour with good tan head. Definitely bambergy. Smokey bacon hammy, similar to aecht schlenkerla in many ways, but not quite as good. A little cardboard though. Still, really good brew.

Drake (11781) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Bottle courtesy of BrewEngineer. Thanks! Pours a dark reddish brow, clear, with a thin tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of smoke, anise, roasted malts, faint berry-like fruits. The taste is smoke, leafy hops, faint roasted malts. Medium bodied. Pretty much a bacon/sausage beer, but a good one.

Smell: Salty smoked ham Taste: Very mild compared to the nose. Salty but light. Nice but nothing spectacular. After taste is a bit too thin and watery
